Profile

Meyrick Pringle only managed to play four Tests and 17 one-day internationals for South Africa but is remembered for his performance against West Indies in Christchurch during the 1992 World Cup. Pringle dismissed Brian Lara, Richie Richardson, Carl Hooper and Keith Arthurton in a group match and finished with figures of 4 for 11. He could not repeat that success in following games, though, and did not play for South Africa after 1995.
